Sorry for the lack in updates this week, I keep telling myself I’ll update more, but time keeps disappearing from me. I will try to do better in the future, but no promises. =P
Alright so to fill you in on the latest adventures…
Wednesday was an average ordinary day which just involved going to class and making dinner.
Thursday was a crazy busy day, but they always are. I had a full day of classes and was absolutely exhausted. Two classes that last 3 and ½ hours each can do that to a person. I grabbed fast food for dinner and spent the rest of the evening hanging out with friends.
Friday became more exciting however, after sleeping in, my friend Becca and I headed back to the V&A Museum. Yes, this was the 3rd time we’d been there in the course of 2 weeks, but today was the day we had tickets for the Hollywood Costumes Exhibits. The exhibit was absolutely amazing. They had so many costumes from so many movies. They had costumes like Batman from the Dark Knight Rises, Catwoman from the 80s, Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz, Harry Potter, Han Solo and Darth Vader from Star Wars, Indiana Jones, Superman, James Bond, an array of Meryl Streep and Robert DeNiro costumes (p.s. did you know that she played Aunt Josephine in a Series of Unfortunate Events? Mind. Blown.) , and of course my absolute favorite…..CAPTAIN JACK SPARROW!!!!!!!!!!!!! So. Much. Excitement. Unfortunately, you weren’t allowed to take pictures inside the exhibit so you’ll all just have to trust me and my judgment on the quality of the exhibit. The rest of the night was spent on homework, laundry, and doing some homework.
On Saturday, Becca, Sheri and I headed to the British Museum. As a history major…you can imagine I was ecstatic about this. Honestly, I could spend days in that place. We explored the exhibits from ancient Egypt, ancient Greece, ancient Iran, Japan, a statue from Easter Island, and the Rosetta stone. I’m already planning on going back.
On leaving the museum, I bought food from a food cart. I’ve heard from a very smart source that the best food in big cities comes from food carts, so I decided to give it a shot. I got a delicious strawberry crepe with whipped cream. It’s making my mouth wandering just thinking about it…however, that could be because its dinner time and I have not summoned up the motivation to start cooking. Instead I shall continue on my merry way with this blog. (=
Sunday was an action packed day. Around noon I headed out to run some errands with Becca and Sheri. I also stopped at Primark to buy a new bag, because I may have possibly overfilled my previous anti-pickpocket bag so that the bag ripped. I now have a new anti-pickpocket bag! And it’s blue! Small excitements!
Later in the afternoon, I headed out with a group of friends to the Somerset House, a type of art museum. My roommate really likes the photographer Tim Walker and he had an exhibit. It was also free, which was a very strong motivator to attend. The exhibit was really cool and the photographer does a lot of things for Vogue. Unfortunately, like the Hollywood costumes exhibit, photography wasn’t allowed so I don’t have any pictures of the actual exhibit.
After the exhibit, Sheri, Becca, and I grabbed groceries to make family dinner and then spent the next hour or so cooking it. The menu included: chicken in a cream of mushroom sauce, green beans, rice, and bread. It tasted fabulous, if I do say so myself. After dinner there was more FYSAE family bonding, where we all watched up in the lounge.
After the movie, a monumental thing occurred. I. PLANNED. That’s right ladies and gentlemen, you read that correctly, I planned something ahead of time. I started the process of planning trips. After lots of stress from attempting to book plane tickets, pick dates, and figure out hotels I can happily say that the second week in April I will be spending several days in Dublin and several days in Paris. For the record, did you know that booking train tickets for France is very difficult when in fact the train schedule itself is in French? Just throwing that out there. But never fear, I will conquer the train schedules!
Monday was an ordinary day full of going to class and doing homework. Tuesday I spent most of the day locked in the lounge working on homework for the next few weeks, because of the fact that I’m going to be away several days this weekend. One exciting adventure for Tuesday was finding a juice bar down the street called Crush. It’s the cutest little shop and the drinks are cheap and healthy. Much better choice to satisfy a sugar fix than buying a candy bar. For dinner, I got to enjoy a lamb steak, because my lovely friend Becca decided to make it. Very delicious.
Today was a normal day. Spent the majority of the afternoon in Creative Writing and am now figuring out how to get everything done tonight and make dinner. So because of that I’m going to start being productive. Promise to blog soon!
